2022 Young People and Gambling Report – survey improvements explained 

Since 2011, we have undertaken the Young People and Gambling Survey, a study of 11 to 16 year olds across Great Britain.

We use the results to help protect them from being harmed or exploited by gambling. On 10 November, we will publish the 2022 report.
